to be the panacea that i think governor brown and the california legislature had predicted. last year as a matter of fact i think we created about 3,000 jobs in green energy, that's total. that's all renewables. and at the pace that jerry brown promised, 500,000 new jobs over the next 10 years, it will take him 167 years to actually make good on that promise. david: by the way, the "wall street journal" looked at the government's figures, the federal government's figures about how many jobs were supposedly created by wind power, by a 4 billion dollars wind power project involved over 30 wind power farms, and the government claimed there were 7,000 jobs. the journal sent reporters and called in to each one of those locations, found out there were only 300 jobs. the government said 7,000. in actuality there were only 300. you can't even depend on government stats to back up their job creation numbers. >> well, they put a tremendous amount of investment into this green jobs right now. and frankly the thing we worry about is governor brown has now mandated that 33% all of energy has to come from rene

.c. judy brown is co-director of the project. i want to start with you. what do you think is the most important thing we need to do? >> thanks for having me. we have big things we have to do. voters are fed up with a broken election system and politicians who have tried to manipulate the law sos that people can't participate for their own partisan gain. what we have to do to fix this is we need to either go big or go home. what i mean by that is it is time for us to have national standards around running state and federal elections. in order to get there, we really are going to have to have a federal law that is passed or a constitutional amendment that will give us these national standar standards. right now, we have 13,000 election jurisdictions in this country that run elections 13,000 different ways? that's the part we have to fix. if we get the national standards, make it explicit in the constitution, we have a right to vote, all else will come from that, including fixing registration, fixing the time it takes us to vote. that's the big idea of where we have to go in this country
